11. Parabolic Shapes

Light modifiers with a parabolic shape allow us to create more directional light. Of course, we can also get more power from our light with parabolic modifiers. But what makes this shape so special? Mark uses graphics and a demonstration of shadows on a wall to explain everything.

Parabolic Shapes

we'll speculate highlights are really fun and now we sort of understand how are different light shapers change those speculate highlights. So we'll just continue the journey and talk about parabolic modifiers, parabolic modifiers are well they look sort of like this guy here, they have this really distinctive shape and this is a parabola. And so if you took basic math, you know all about these shapes. But to help us out, I have a little chart here in my power point and this is a parabola. It's this sort of an umbrella a shape. It's a very specific shape. But what it does, if we look at this chart, you can see that there's this point. F. That F point stands for focus point. So if you have a light at that point then all of the light that comes from that that point source of light, it's going to hit the parabola at certain points and because of the angle of incidence and the angle of reflection, all of that light is going to come straight out of that modifier. So let's take another look a...

Wow, Impressive with lots of information on light modifiers. Lots of variations of use and the bonus material. Mark is very good as a teacher. Glad I purchased the subscription plan so I can see the other Mark Wallace classes. Now to go to work and use the information.

I've heard much of this before, but this class really does a good job explaining and demonstrating the principles and techniques it covers. Mark is certainly quite knowledgeable, and he makes the material accessible and easy to grasp. It does cover quite a lot of ground, and while others may go into more detail, I think this class is great for building a good foundation.
